Breech Baby Session
What can you do yourself when your baby is positioned in a breech position at the end of your pregnancy (3rd trimester/ 26-40 weeks).
Our lifestyle during the pregnancy and every day habits, how we sit, sleep, walk, even cycle on the bike, greatly contribute to the baby’s possibility to find optimal position in the womb and later on in the pelvis before the birth. In the modern society we have a quite static, asymmetric and chaotic lifestyle. Sitting in a car, on a train, at work, on a couch, standing with one leg on the pedal at the red light, wearing a bag on one shoulder, leaning on one hip as well as stress and constant social pressure (Do you recognize yourself in this?). Due to these factors, we often miss the body balance. Instead of choosing the body work that “work in”, there is a tendency to look for a “work out”. As a result, our body is too tense. The ligaments and muscles are too tight and baby simply doesn’t have enough space to use the gravity and turn into head-down position.
The good thing is – you can do something about it! The earlier the better, they say, but it’s never too late, we add.
We are two doulas – Alise and Anita and we would gladly share our knowledge in the Breech baby session. In 1 hour session one of us will explain and show you how to work with your own body and how aligned and balanced body might help your baby to make a turn head-down – the best possible position for birth. Together we practice different gentle techniques which you will be able to take home with you. Our approach is customized, based on where you are in your pregnancy right now. We adapt the sequence of techniques/ exercises and suggest how often to repeat them, so you are encouraged and feel confident to practice on your own or together with your partner.
